September weather and where to go
September remains dry with low levels of humidity meaning much fewer mosquitoes around which is always a bonus! Wildebeest and zebra may start heading back south from Kenya and crossing the Masai Mara between September and November (depending on water levels and rainfall) so it might be possible to catch a river crossing at this time. The chart below shows the averages for the Serengeti throughout the month and the comparative average rainfall in Zanzibar
The latter end of the dry season also sees the beginning of better sea visibility off the coast of Zanzibar making it an excellent time to snorkel and dive. Sea visibility is generally good between September and March depending on how the short rains of November and December affect the water.
September is also the start of the fishing season so if you are interested in this please ask our experts about the best places to visit.
